At some point every business owner begins thinking about developing an exit strategy. I am frequently asked, “When is the best time to put a business for sale on the market?” When it comes to selling a business, many owners find it a real challenge to get a reasonable deal. They face the typical issues of being unable to reach qualified buyers, possibly even competitors, without disclosing an intention to sell. Business owners are also at a loss when it comes to evaluating their business objectively to ensure that they receive top dollar on their investment and avoid costly negotiating tactics.
Selling a business can be an exciting time for any entrepreneur, but it is very important for any potential business owner to do their due diligence before making a commitment. The process necessary to sell a business entails thorough preparation, while striving to minimize potentially damaging public exposure to customers, competitors, employees and suppliers. Moreover, it takes specialized training and knowledge to market a business in all of the appropriate databases and media efficiently, effectively, and confidentially.
